Preparing for Another Day One…

It was the very end of the World Chanpionships in 2018 and the emotion came at me like a wave, I wasn’t expecting to be sat in the foyer in the Birmingham Repertory Theatre that day tearful the journey was over. I’d done a number of bodybuilding shows that year, to prove to myself IContinue reading “Preparing for Another Day One…”

Transforming Internal battles with Disability. So much more than acceptance…

Into my mid 30’s, I’m able to reflect on a deeper level of understanding growing up with a disability with more 3 decades behind me with Cerebral Palsy. The battles to prove to yourself that you can find ways or use something to ‘normalise’ the external surrounding, my ‘stubbornness’ of over 7 years of notContinue reading “Transforming Internal battles with Disability.
